Introduction to FPGA Design for Embedded Systems
coursera

This course can also be taken for academic credit as ECEA 5360, part of CU Boulder's Master of Science in Electrical Engineering degree. Programmable Logic has become more and more common as a core technology used to build electronic systems. By integrating soft-core or hardcore processors, these devices have become complete systems on a chip, steadily displacing general purpose processors and ASICs. In particular, high performance systems are now almost always implemented with FPGAs. This cours...
